A Catholic priest who converted to Islam has been speaking about his reasons for changing faith.
Idris Tawfiq was a guest speaker at the University of Cambridge's annual Experience Islam Week, which aims to raise awareness and foster tolerance.
Mr Tawfiq said: "It's not that I went looking for Islam. Islam came looking for me.
"I loved my former life and my work, but now I've found a peace that I never knew before."
Mr Tawfiq explained that he made the decision to leave the priesthood when he realised how lonely he was.
"I left my job, but not the Catholic religion," he said.
"I had no intention of changing my faith. That wasn't part of the plan at all."
